Mission and Beliefs

Our Mission
The mission of the San Francisco Boys Chorus is to provide music education, vocal training, and performance experience at the highest artistic level to boys from all cultural, ethnic, and economic backgrounds.
Our Vision
The San Francisco Boys Chorus is a universally recognized arts leader, promoting excellence in performance and arts education.
We Believe . . .
The Chorus experience helps develop strong character and builds community leaders through self-discipline, confidence, commitment, teamwork, and respect for others.
  • Boys succeed in a concrete, kinesthetic, non-competitive environment.
  • When we work together, we can achieve more.
  • The performing arts should reflect the community in which we live.

The San Francisco Boys Chorus exists to discover, develop and encourage boys with unchanged voices through its music programs. Its heritage of more than sixty years of training young performers for the opera and other major musical institutions has established the highest standards of excellence with which our boys are trained for today and prepared for tomorrow. We believe that the lives of all people are enriched and strengthened by a love of music.


The quality of life in our communities is enhanced when there is a wide variety of opportunities for participation in musical activities and other artistic pursuits. Beyond its deep commitment to quality music education, the Chorus experience builds a boy’s character as well as his talent. All of our programs reflect an instructional approach designed to nurture self-esteem, leadership, independence, discipline, and responsibility, as well as a life-long love of music.
